After the Quake

In November 2016 we had a decent sized earthquake, felt mostly in Kaikoura and the north of the South Island, and also in Wellington. One fatality unfortunately with many buildings severely damaged or written off: another reminder that civilisation is subject to nature’s consent.

” In the uncertain hour before the morning,
Between three districts whence the smoke arose,
I met one walking, loitering and hurried,
As if blown towards me..”
T.S.Eliot
